Q: Who run the Picture Kentucky Workshop? A: The workshop was created and is operated by the Kentucky Kernel, a non-profit media organization of student publications at the University of Kentucky. David Stephenson is the workshop director.
Q: Who can attend the Picture Kentucky Workshop? A: The workshop is intended primarily for Kentucky Kernel students and University of Kentucky journalism students. We anticipate also having students from Kentucky State University join us. If we have space, other students may attend and we can allow non-students to attend the workshop. Please inquire in you are interested.
Q: Do I get class credit for attending the PKY workshop? A: The answer is “maybe.” The workshop is available for class credit if you are a journalism student. You can register for JOU 497 Picture Kentucky Workshop through controlled enrollment and earn 2 credit hours. You also have the option of taking a JOU 497 Picture Kentucky Publications Workshop course after the regular workshop and earn an additional 1 credit hour. Contact David Stephenson for more information.
Q: What is the PKY Publications Workshop? A: After the workshop, a class will meet at UK once a week for 5-6 weeks to produce a book, or website, or some combinations of publications using the material generated by the workshop participants. Publications workshop participants do not have to attend the regular workshop.
Q: How much does it cost to attend? A: It depends. Tuition will be set in the near future but we expect it to be $200 or less. If you are taking this as a UK Journalism class, you will not pay the workshop tuition. There may be costs associated with food or lodging for participants, but we are still working on the details and budget.
